Associated Press HELENA-WEST HELENA, Ark. — Officials say three people are dead after an hourslong standoff in the eastern Arkansas city of Helena-West Helena. Police say the standoff began Tuesday afternoon after two people were found dead in the front yard of a home in Helena-West Helena, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) east of Little Rock. Memphis, Tennessee, TV station WMC reports that a man fired on responding officers, and a SWAT team later responded. Helena-West Helena Mayor Kevin Smith says the SWAT team entered the home and used flashbangs to draw out the suspect. The mayor said in a statement that the suspect died in a shootout with police. Authorities have not yet released the name of the man killed in the shootout or the two people who were found dead earlier.
